Tumblr of the Week: DERIK

How excited would you be if you were out for a walk and came across these guys eying you through a window? My favorite thing about these vibrant characters is how they bring life and humor to the otherwise colorless places they are found in. It's fun to see artists getting creative with the environment beyond their pens and paper. I'm lucky that DERIK happens to follow the DA tumblr so that I could have the chance to stumble onto his blog. Street artists like him make the world a more magical place full of colorful surprises around unexpected corners!

Cultivate Our Garden





Editor's note: This entry is brought to you by our good friend and scribbler, Lisa Currie, who is also the author of two really awesome doodle books, The Scribble Diary and her latest, Me, You, Us.

Today I'm excited to share this bright, happy, hand-painted (!!) interview with artist Rebecca Volynsky. I asked her a few simple questions (via the above prompts) about her creative life right now, and she let her paintbrush do the talking.

How luscious are these two pages filled with bright plants and golden waves and endless coffee cups! It's like we all get a bouquet of wild flowers delivered to our desktops today. Hand-painted, of course. Thanks Rebecca!

Member Spotlight: Lauren Salgado





This is pretty cool. I recently learned that a doodle addict I follow on Instagram has been a member of the Doodlers Anonymous community since she was 14 years-old. She's now 19. Wow, I often forget I've been running this website that long. She writes in to tell me she's been obsessed with designing and drawing since, and that becomes quite clear when you look at her sketchbook that's filled with pages of lines, patterns and shapes.

What I like best is that each doodle looks like it could easily translate into a textile print, for use in home or apparel design.

Lauren, thanks for being a fan for so long and keep building on your talent. You can follow her over on Tumblr or Instagram.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #6: Polly Lindsay



The thing about finding artists from our coloring books is that you never know what to expect from seeing the one illustration they submitted to us. What I found when I looked up Polly Lindsay was quite a surprise. Her art is pretty out of the ordinary from what we normally post here, but I got a little crush on her unexpected style of cutting and layering paper.

Rorschach Test for Doodlers

Rorschach Test for Doodlers

The See . Saw series by L Filipe dos Santos consists of before and after pictures of his sketchbook. The "before" pics look a lot like ink blots, but they are actually gouache stains that the artist draws over. It's intriguing that he includes a photo of the stains before he drew over them, because it lets me first imagine what I would see in them myself. That makes it all the more interesting to compare how Santos' creative interpretation of the stains is so very different from my own. What do you see?

Tumblr of the Week: Gourmet Scum

I really enjoy it when artists add captions or speech bubbles to their drawings of people. Maybe it stems from my love of comics or maybe the added commentary makes the experience that much better. The Tumblr of the Week today belongs to an 18 year old artist from Chicago named Meredith, who seems to be pretty heavily influenced by 80's aesthetics. Something about these marker doodles does give me flashbacks to certain old cartoons I used to watch on television. Find more of these goodies on Meredith's blog!

Sketchbook Pages to Get Lost In





I know nothing formal about Tanxuan, except that he's from Shenzhen, China and that he's got an incredible talent for drawing, with some of the most beautiful sketchbook pages I've ever laid my eyes on.

His Instagram is a constant feed of jaw dropping inspiration with drawings ranging from seductive women to odd foods to incredible overlapping cityscapes and the people within them.
